How do you sleep and what is your favorite way to sleep?
Professor Chris Idzikowski, the director of the UK Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, conducted a survey by asking the most common sleeping positions and self-described personality traits about 1000 British people. He found a lot of people don't change their sleeping positions throughout their lives. Pick your sleeping position and see what it says about your personality!

Fetal sleepers curl their legs with knees pulled up to their chests and heads bent forward. They have a tough exterior but are actually shy and sensitive on the inside. They prone to worry and overthink and often want to be protected, understood, and sympathised. People who choose this position only reveal their thoughts to people they trust. By curling up their legs, they are cutting themselves off from the problems they face in their lives.
#2 Log 15%
They lie on their sides with their legs extended straight and arms by their sides. People who sleep like a log are social, carefree and easy going that prefer to be included in an A-list crowd but inflexible in their thinking. Their negative traits are bossy, stubborn and rigid. They are very trusting in others, which makes them a little gullible.
